Faridkot, August 20

Five years after the police gave a clean chit to six persons from whom it had recovered eight illegal foreign-made weapons, the Faridkot police today booked all these persons on the recommendations of the Organised Crime Control Unit (OCCU) of the Punjab Police.

All the accused are politically connected and influential persons and two of them are owners of gun houses in Chandigarh and Karnal.

The buyers of illegal weapons have been booked under Sections 420, 467, 468, 471, 472 and 392 of the IPC and Section 25 of the Arms Act. The accused are Satish Kumar of Chandigarh, Raj Chopra of Karnal, Pankaj Bansal of Moga, Bhupinder Singh of Muktsar, Amit Goyal of Delhi and Rohit Chabra of Kotkapura.

With the arrest of two notorious gangsters, Ranjit Singh Dupla and his associate Gurcharan Singh, alias Rinka, who were facing 18 criminal charges, including kidnapping, attempt to murder and smuggling weapons in UP and Punjab, in October 2014, the police had recovered eight foreign-made weapons which the gangsters had sold to the influential persons in Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi.
